Several Santa Cruz City YSC teams made the finals of their divisions at the 2014 Santa Cruz Classic tournament, held on September 27 & 28. Congratulations!
The Jaws 95 girls team competed in the Breakers Cup earlier this August, and took 2nd place! The team had a couple of hard fought wins. One of those wins was against the Los Gatos Pumas, Spring District Cup champions to whom they had previously lost to in this past Spring District Cup tournament.
Way to go girls!!!!
Santa Cruz City's Jaws 99 White took first place in last weeks hotly contested GU14 "world cup" beach tournament, with teams coming form as far away as Placerville. he girls finished 2nd two weeks prior, in the ProAm Beach tournament, and were not going to settle for 2nd again! The girls finished with an impressive 4-1-0 (+16 GD). In the final, the Jaws girls kept their composure against an aggressive and very vocal Livermore Fusion squad. The girls used their local beach knowledge/training to come away with a strong 4-1 win!
The U-13 Sharks 00 Blue, a wildcard team called to compete at the last minute as a finalist in the Northern California Region IV Presidents cup, fought valiantly through six games -- winning two in round-robin play against Oregon and Alaska, then beating Colorado in the Quarterfinals and Idaho in the Semifinals to reach the Finals Sunday morning against the HG Eagles from Cal-South.
The Sharks scored first on a penalty kick by Jonathan Sherwood-Flett in the 19th minute. Cal-South answered in the 60th minute, sending the game into two overtime periods. A goal by Cal-South in the 80th minute gave them the win. Cal South moves on to the National President’s Cup in South Dakota.
The Sharks, a Santa Cruz City YSC team, were coached by German Plaza and Thanasis Kottas. The Sharks’ Travis Hatcher was a top goal scorer in the tournament with a total of 5 goals.
